(CNN) — Jordan Axani planned to travel around the world with his girlfriend Elizabeth Gallagher, until they broke up. Now, he’ll embark on Sunday on the circumnavigation with Elizabeth Gallagher.
No need for a double-take: The name may be the same, but the person answering to it isn’t.
Axani had booked his-and-her airline tickets in his name — and his girlfriend’s, he said. So, after his ex went overboard, he had to find a new co-passenger with the same name, he said, because the tickets were non-transferable.
Axani is Canadian, as is his ex, so the new Elizabeth Gallagher needed to be, too, to make the switch work. So, he took to social messaging service Reddit to find her.
After threw out the offer in early November for a free round-the-world trip, social media posts avalanched down at the hashtag #ElizabethGallagher.
